Jabil Photonics Overview

As artificial intelligence transforms the way we work, it also transforms the networks that deliver it. The back-end AI network will drive a step-change in the volume of connections requiring high-speed, low latency interconnect for AI clouds. Edge AI solutions such as autonomous driving and augmented reality will expand that requirement to millions of more connections. Different solutions are currently underway, from high-speed transceivers to co-packaged optics with the target to increase connectivity speed with lower power consumption. To meet these needs, hardware providers must rethink their supply chain and manufacturing approach. This new world requires expanded scale, deployment of advanced manufacturing technologies, and streamlined supply chains.

From Silicon to Solutions – Let Jabil Light the Way

Tight tolerances, inability to rework, and extreme miniaturization requirements make photonic devices some of the most challenging devices to effectively manufacture at scale. Jabil has been designing components, developing process capabilities, and delighting customers for a decade in this space.

Solutions customized for your needs:

Optical Manufacturing Services

Whether your device or module needs packaging, or you are ready to launch a completed product, our team of experts will help you navigate the new product introduction process, including:

  • Optimizing the supply chain network to deliver the lowest landed costs in your target geographies.

  • Optimizing the bill of materials for both supply chain resiliency and cost.

  • Evaluating and recommending design changes to facilitate manufacturing and test for improved cycle times and yield.

  • Developing test strategies to optimize yield vs. cost.

  • Creating a ramp plan customized to your market and customers — whether that is for a few thousand units a month or millions of units a month.

  • Creating optimal fulfilment solutions around logistics and configuring to order, as needed.
